教育目標

The purpose of this course is to use social media( 社交媒體) to explore social volunteering in our community. This course will use English as our primary classroom language. We will study the development of social networks(社交網絡) that use volunteering(志願者) to affect social change (社會變革) in Taiwan and the world. The course will include some reading in social networks(聯網), social capital(社會資本), volunteer theory(志願者理論), and other concepts that provide a foundation for sociological study of groups and networking. The course will be project-based (專題研習) in order to develop an understanding of the social process in community involvement (社區參與), especially using the power of social media. Students will complete four projects based on their research of community organizations(社區組織) such as non-profit organizations(非營利組織) or non-governmental organizations(非政府組織). In addition to studying community networks and using social media, students will also develop their English writing, speaking, discussion and presentation skills by preparing media presentations as well as questions for discussion. On completion of this course, students should be able to: 1. understand the concepts of networking聯網, community organization社區組織, social media社交媒體, social capital社會資本, volunteerism志願者理論and social change社會變革; 2. express their opinions to and exchange ideas about society with classmates and native speakers in English; 3. communicate ideas in English for discussion/debate/casual and formal presentation; and 4. navigate social media and community social networks to bring about social change
